Bright Hope Designs feels it's critical to the success of
your custom website design project for you to understand our approach to creating your website. We want you to have a firm understanding of the website design process and "big picture" for the creation of your website.
With this website design process in place we are able to deliver your custom website on time and within budget.
See what our clients say in the "testimonial" sections throughout this site. They say it all!
Phase I - Initial Meeting
The goal of this initial meeting is to discuss the scope and expectations of the custom website project. This
is an opportunity for all those involved in the decision making to be heard and to hear what Bright
Hope Designs can do for them. In addition, all items needed for the successful completion of the website design
are identified and a timeline for delivery is mapped out. At this time a Domain Name is chosen (with
alternatives named in the event the first choice is unavailable). We will reserve the best name for
your company based on these pre-approved choices.
We will collect the URLs of website designs you like with notes as to what it is you like about each
website. These websites do not have to be related to your business industry. We use these websites to
get a clear idea of your direction and tastes.
We will at this time discuss the best keywords that describe your business. These will
help the search engines find your business once your website goes live.
A timeline is then developed to determine what will be included in the website design and when it will
be delivered to our design team.
Based on the information gathered at this meeting we will develop a quote of charges.
quote is approved, and the contract is signed and returned with the deposit amount the fun will begin!
Phase II - Design Prototyping
The goal of this step is for our website design team to present at least 2-3 different concept looks for
comment/suggestions/changes. These will be DRAFT concepts intended to show colors, graphics and
navigation. These concepts will reside on our "testing" server with access available only to
Bright Hope Designs staff and its client. At no time will these DRAFT copies be published for
From these choices the client will make their final choice of how the website will appear in its final
form. This is a critical part of the process due to the fact that everything from this point forward will be
done with this final website design in mind.
Assembly of all necessary items for the website design will begin. Bright Hope Designs also offers additional website solution services
that can help make this part of the process easier for the client to accomplish:
Website Consulting and Marketing - we can work with you to help gather and organize the appropriate content for your website.
Photography - we can take the crucial images for your website that will enhance the look, feel and message
of your website.
Content writing - we have the resources available to help with this ever important aspect of
SEO - we will research keywords/phrases for your industry to be used by search engines.
Phase III - Final Design Prototyping
Once a website design has been chosen, a working version of it will be created in HTML for another review.
We do this to ensure the “look” matches the “feel” the client expects.
Any changes are made before any content is added.
We now begin to build the complete website. A DRAFT copy will again be placed on the testing
server so that the client has continued access as to the progress of the website design development. Any
changes/suggestions during this phase need to be sent via email. Major changes in website design and layout
at this point are subject to additional charges.
Phase IV - Making it Final!
Once final approval from the client is received by Bright Hope Designs via email the DRAFT website
will be moved to the client URL and tested again. The website will be registered with the major
search engines and directories with the keywords provided in Phase I.
Success in any business is the result of hard work, time and a host of
uncontrolled factors. No expressed or implied guarantees of income, search engine ranking or
website traffic are made when purchasing a website design from Bright Hope Designs.
Phase V - Maintenance
One key to having a successful website design is to keep the website updated with new and relevant
content. We offer two website maintenance options to choose from and will work with you to determine
which best fits your situation.
Once your website is live and you need changes and updates, just give us a call or send us and
email with your change request. We are always happy to help and timely in our response.
